13 Feb The how to of a vintage blazer!
Another clashing print outfit but it’s not that outrageous I would say. The color palette is within the same family so it’s still pretty safe. I am gagging at the fact that I can’t wear jeans to the new place I am working for and it sucks because all I want to do is wear jeans. However, this pushes me out of my current style rut and forces me to wear anything that is not within the denim family. Therefore, trousers have been my very best friend lately and I am revisiting old items in my wardrobe that I have kept on the side when I was pregnant. Rediscovering certain of these items has been very interesting and even though I have put on a little bit of weight, I am so happy that they still fit (somewhat nicely). Seeing said items after months of not using them usually gives me different ideas on how to wear and style them. This in itself is such a game changer, because I am not spending on buying new things and I’m being super eco-friendly. If I am bored of certain items (usually that’s what I do), I put them away for a while and decide to revisit in a couple of months. That’s how it usually works with any great piece of art, doesn’t it?! Leave it on the side and work on it when you’re inspired.
Today’s pièce de résistance is a pair of printed culottes I got from Zara 3 years ago while on a trip in Jordan. They were on sale for like 10 bucks and I couldn’t resist the beautiful color. My husband hates them and whenever I wear culottes he never gets it, but nonetheless, I love them! He always thinks that there’s no point to culottes, if pants are going to be cropped then wear shorts instead…men!
I even almost forgot I still had them, but I got super excited to see that I had kept them and luckily, they’re still in wonderful condition. Seeing that I didn’t want to wear another boring black top with it. I added a printed vintage blazer that I have had in my shop for a while and was debating of selling or not. I mean it’s a boyfriend fit, clearly, but the quality of it is beautiful. I put it on sale then removed it because I wanted to keep it.
WHAT I AM WEARING
JACKET: Vintage ◊ SHIRT: Vero Moda ◊ PANTS: Zara ◊ SHOES: Doc Martens ◊ WATCH: Marc Jacobs ◊ JEWELRY: Damas (Gold)
An outfit like this one is still wearable because the colors are muted even though they somewhat clash. But lately, I have been having such a huge interest in clashing prints…perhaps it’s the simplest way I can find to express what’s currently going in my mind. Don’t know if it works for everyone, but for me it does!
